Yet Another Nutcase Goes Berzerk

The carnage in America continues with deadly shootings at two Christian institutions in Colorado yesterday. Early in the morning, a young man killed two and injured two others at Arvada, Colorado's campus of Youth With A Mission. Then in the early afternoon, 70 miles away in Colorado Springs, a gunman opened fire in New Life Church (Ted Haggard's old church) and killed one person before a security guard took out the gunman. It is currently unknown if this was the same assailant in both cases, but I am hoping so, since if not, there is still a defective human being at large in the Arvada case. I read that the Arvada Police have reason to believe they are connected, and I guess ballistics analysis should help support that theory or refute it. In any case, while it is sad that anyone dies, the guard at New Life likely saved many more people by killing the gunman. My condolences go out everyone affected by these unconscionable acts of violence.

Update: I just heard on KCNC-TV in Denver that a second person in the New Life shootings has died in the hospital overnight.
